Captive Artists: the unseen art of British Far East prisoners of war Author Meg Parkes

Availability: In stock (3)

The artwork produced by Far East Prisoners of War during World War II was forbidden.  This meant great resourcefulness was needed, with artwork completed on scraps of paper, often using homemade paints and tools.

Captive Artists brings together for the first time, this secret art, created by 65 unrecognised artists, all British service men who documented their survival.
